Notes/Commercial Description:
Hoppy Boy India Pale Ale is Twisted Pine Brewing Company’s flagship beer. With a rocky ivory head, star-bright golden orange color, and massive hop aroma, Hoppy Boy is the quintessential American IPA. Citrus, resin, and a hint of malt not only greet your nose, but also your taste buds, while a smooth, lingering bitterness leaves your palate refreshed with every sip. Hoppy Boy IPA is a perfect marriage of malts and hops that is as bold as it is balanced, and thus exemplifies what American craft beer is all about.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams pint glass.

The beer pours a hazy orange-gold with a 2-finger head that quickly compacts to a thin, foamy top that leaves some lingering lacing.

The aroma is pretty muted: some grass and citrus and an earthy note underneath.

The taste is not bad. Bright an bitter up front from the piney hops, a little spice and citrus with a lingering piney dryness. Not detecting much from the malts.

I like the mouthfeel on this beer, medium, a little sticky and even slightly creamy. This is an easy drinking IPA but it lacks complexity.

A: Pours an opaque orange/straw color with a white head.

S: Pine comes through the strongest, alongside sweet, nectary fruits, some orange, some more tropical notes, in the nose.

T: Pine, sweet mango, a touch of pineapple, some orange. Lemon lingers along the edge of the palate.

M: Medium bodied and quite smooth.

O: Definitely recommended
